Helped to make our wedding day and ceremony perfect. Literally the best day of my life up to now! Our ceremony was beautiful. There was laughter and tears. People who have attended many weddings told us it was one of the most emotional and touching ceremonies they had ever been to. Rev. Michael Whalen helped us to create a ceremony that was special and customized just to us. We loved the workmanship, along with the professionalism and assurance he provided. Absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a heartfelt and genuine officiant. You will not regret working with him!!!Jul 6, 2017Verified

If you are looking for the perfect officiant, he is the man to hire!Mar 14, 2016Verified
I cannot give Rev Michael enough praise. He officiated our wedding ceremony at Laurita Winery in New Egypt NJ and he was the definition of calm, cool and collected. He came to the rehearsal the day before the ceremony and walked through everything with us until we were comfortable. He handled everything for the marriage license and made sure I had my copy before he left. He was better than myself or my husband could have asked for. OUTSTANDING!!!Jun 17, 2015Verified
